Jordan Reed, Jimmy Garoppolo earn PFF’s highest grades from 49ers-Jets matchup

Sep 21, 2020 at 5:54 AM--

Analytics site Pro Football Focus released its grades from Sunday's Week 2 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets. The road-team Niners routed the home-team Jets 31-13 in a game that featured several injuries.

One of those injuries was to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who did not return to the field after halftime and was later ruled "out" with a high-ankle sprain. Before the injury, Garoppolo played well, completing 87.5 percent of his passes for 131 yards with two touchdowns and a passer rating of 140.4.

Garoppolo's 90.2 overall grade from Pro Football Focus was the second-highest from the game.

The highest overall grade from the Week 2 matchup went to tight end Jordan Reed, who saw more action due to George Kittle being out with a knee injury. Reed's 92. 1 overall grade was the best from the game.

Reed finished the game with seven receptions for 50 yards on eight targets and hauled in both of Garoppolo's scores.

The highest-graded Jets player was quarterback Sam Darnold, who earned an 86.2 mark.

Below were the five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Jets.

  • Jordan Reed, TE, 92.1
  • Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, 90.2
  • Jerick McKinnon, RB, 87.4
  • Raheem Mostert, RB, 83.5
  • Kendrick Bourne, WR, 77.3

Below were the five highest-graded 49ers players on defense.

  • Arik Armstead, DE, 88.0
  • K'Waun Williams, CB, 76.1
  • Kevin Givens, DT, 75.8
  • Tarvarius Moore, FS, 75.0
  • Emmanuel Moseley, CB, 73.6

Which 49ers owned Sunday's lowest grades on both sides of the football? That would be defensive end Kentavius Street (34.3) and safety Jimmie Ward (35.4) on defense, and tight ends Charlie Woerner (36.5) and Ross Dwelley (40.4) on offense.

2020 was a fairly forgettable season for the 49ers, but there were still three catches along the way that were memorable enough to be included in the NFL's collection of the top 100 catches of the year. The collection was released to the NFL's YouTube account on February 19 and included catches from wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, tight end Jordan Reed, and tight end George Kittle, with Reed and Kittle's catches cracking the top 20. Here's a look at the 49ers catches that made their list. C.J. Beathard and Kendrick Bourne's meaningless-but-still-cool Hail Mary completion (ranked 68th overall) This play came as time expired in the 49ers' 41-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on December 20.

We have just one sample of a full season with Jimmy Garoppolo as a starter. During that 2019 season, the quarterback led the San Francisco 49ers to 13 regular-season wins and a playoff run ending with a Super Bowl appearance. Outside of that, Garoppolo was a backup in New England and has battled to stay on the field due to injuries in San Francisco. Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus recently ranked every NFL team's quarterback situation by need. After all, the quarterback can be the most important position on a team, and those that have elite ones can have longer championship windows.

The San Francisco 49ers let wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders leave via free agency after pulling off a mid-season trade with the Denver Broncos to acquire him. He was seen as a piece that could help lift the team to a championship, and it came very close to accomplishing that last year. Could offensive tackle Trent Williams be one-and-done, too? Last year, San Francisco traded for Williams to replace the retiring Joe Staley, giving up draft capital in the process. Williams is the most prominent name among the 49ers' long list of impending free agents. NFL Network's Gregg Rosenthal recently ranked his top 101 free agents in 2021. Williams came in
